Don't hold grudge towards those who attacked my office, says Rahul Gandhi during Wayanad visit

Kalpetta: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said he doesn't hold grudge towards those who vandalised his office in Wayanad. He added that Congress is trying to bring people together in a peaceful manner. His remark came after he visited his office in Wayanadon Friday.

"This was an unfortunate thing. This is the place that reverberates the concerns of people in Wayanad. No solution can be sought through such violence. I realised that youngsters were behind the attack. They might have acted out without considering the consequences. However, I hold no grudge towards them," he said.

Rahul, who is on a three-day visit to his constituency here, reached the office along with other senior leaders of the party and took stock of the damage. Later, he told reporters that it is the office of the people of Wayanad and what was done by the SFI cadres was "quite an unfortunate thing."

Also, he criticised the Modi government over the Supreme Court's observation on Nupur Sharma's hate speech row.

"It is not the person who made the controversial statement but the BJP government created the current situation in the country. The Prime Minister, the Home Minister, the BJP and the RSS have created an atmosphere of anger and hatred in the country. They are carrying out anti-national activities. Such actions of theirs led to tragedies," he said.

He said that Congress is trying to bring people together in the country to fight against BJP.
